I just got 2x 512 DDR 400 ram and installed them into comp. I turned it on, and the monitor was completly blank. After that i tried puting in 1 stick at a time in every slot, it all came turned out the same, blank monitor. Then i tried to put in my old ram, and it still didnt work! So i figured it might be my graphics card, i put my old one in, and it still came up blank! also, i have reset the cmos, which did nothing. This has me completly stumped, i have no idea what to do anymore.. my specs are: 3200+ AMD Athlon XP 7NF-RZ Gigabyte Motherboard Soundblaster Live Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB Al-A400ATX Max 400W Apex PSU 512 DDR PC 2700 (my old ram) The kind people at Futuremark figured this out for me, thanks anyways, it seemed that all i had to do is unplug my PSU switch for 30 seconds and plug it back in.
